Obstetrical Outcomes Program

The program is a collaborative effort of Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, Kelsey Research Foundation and The Woman's Hospital of Texas (TWH).  Supported since 1995 by The Woman's Hospital of Texas, the program is committed to improving the quality of obstetrical care and patient outcomes.  Fran Smith, M.D., Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at KSC, serves as the Principal Investigator of the program. The Obstetrical Outcomes Program works closely with the Obstetrical Department at Kelsey-Seybold Clinic to develop patient education materials on preconception care, pregnancy health guidelines, and postpartum depression. The Obstetrical Research Committee, comprised of members from the Kelsey Research Foundation, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic and The Woman's Hospital of Texas, conducts research to improve the care of women and infants.
